Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Questions and Answers
What is Vaseline Petroleum Jelly?
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly was discovered in 1859 by Robert Chesebrough. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is made of 100% pure petroleum jelly, a blend of mineral oils and waxes and has over 14o years heritage of restoring and protecting dry skin.
What are the benefits of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly?
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly forms a sealed barrier between cells in damaged or dry skin. This barrier seals in moisture and makes your skin’s natural recovery process faster, restoring skin from within. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly has air and water tight functionality which means it protects dehydrated skin, cracked skin, minor cuts and scrapes. It can also be used to protect skin and lips against dryness and chapping.
Is Vaseline Petroleum Jelly different to other petroleum jelly products?
Quite simply, yes. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is the original petroleum jelly. For more than 140 years it has been helping to keep skin restored and looking flawless. We use the highest quality ingredients and a trademarked triple purification process which ensures that each jar is pure and has a smooth consistency. Many imitation brands do not have the same level of stringency around quality. Our Vaseline Triple Purification seal ensures a worry-free purchase.
If Vaseline Jelly is made from petroleum, is it safe for me and my child?
Yes, it is safe for every member of the family. Petroleum Jelly is derived from petroleum, and Vaseline ensures the safety of its jelly by putting it through a triple purification process. This process removes impurities, that results in a non-irritating and hypo-allergenic product.
Will Vaseline Petroleum Jelly clog my pores?
No, Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is non-comedogenic, which means it will not clog pores, irritate your skin, or cause acne.
What makes Vaseline lotions different from other brands?
Only Vaseline Intensive Care lotions are enriched with rich moisturisers and triple-purified healing micro-droplets of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. This fast-absorbing, non-greasy formulation is absorbed deeply by the skin to help restore your skin from deep within.
What are the external causes of dry skin?
Dry skin can be caused by weather, environment, some soaps and detergents, diet or central heating and air-conditioning. The natural oils that occur in your skin can be lost through normal activities throughout the day, stripping the natural moisture protection your skin needs to stay restored. Without the necessary moisture, your skin’s protective barrier degrades, allowing even more moisture to escape.
Why should I moisturise daily?
Healthy skin is made up of almost 90% water, giving your skin the strength and flexibility to protect your body. Throughout the day, your body loses approximately a litre and a half of water. External factors, like the ones mentioned above, exacerbate the loss of water through your skin by breaking down your natural moisture protection barrier. Vaseline lotions replenish the necessary moisture and nutrients and lock in the moisture that is needed to help keep your skin restored and beautiful every day.
